>> eric: this is a fox news alert. right now you are looking live at capitol hill where a vote on the debt ceiling should happen tonight. stay with fox. we will bring you the results as soon as they're in. welcome to "the five." i'm eric bolling, alongside kimberly guilfoyle, bob becket, dana perino, and greg gutfeld. we have a lot of ground to cover today. like a brand new gallup poll showing that more than a third of americans think president obama along with congress are doing the worst job they have seen in their lifetime when it comes to dealing with the nation's problems. our right to bear arms is protected in the constitution. one democrat congressman is thankful for that. plus, story that really shocked all of us, registered sex offender, granted custody of his young daughter. "the five" starts right now. ♪ ♪ >> eric: you know, being a hardcore conservative, i could easily just come out and bash
2:01 am
obama for all his economic failures. instead, let's let steve wynn, a democrat and casino mogul talk obamanomics. >> i'm afraid to do anything in the current political environment in the united states. i'm saying it bluntly that this administration is the greatest wet blanket to business and progress and job creation in my lifetime. well, this is obama's deal. it's obama that is responsible for this fear in america. the guy keeps making speeches about redistribution, and maybe we ought to do something to businesses that don't invest or are holding too much money. you know, we haven't heard that kind of talk except from pure socialists. >> eric: all right, dana. dems jumping off the obama like rats off the titanic. >> dana: i wish steve wynn would tell us how he really feels and not hold back. if i were in the white house
2:02 am
now i'd think ouch. i think if steve wynn had been replacing leaders with republicans, they're the wet blanket on the economy, i think bob's friends would have gone out to buy ads to run it to make sure they saw it. instead, what they've done today is throw one of the democratic supporters under the bus for saying what businesses have been saying behind closed doors. >> greg: now steve wynn knows how i feel when i go to vegas. i feel completely robbed. now it's nice the see him feel bad. but it's obama remorse. he was never an obama supporter. his wife is like when you buy poe pay toe chip -- potato chips and you open it up and it's just air. obama now, they realize nothing is there. >> eric: steve wynn is right. obamapomics may be socialist but it's not capitalism and it's certainly not working.
2:03 am
>> bob: really? [ laughter ] that is a surprise coming from you. i'm only going to say this. i know steve wynn. he hires a lot of lobbyists in washington, d.c., including frank farenkoff to gum up the works to keep casinos with tax breaks and everything advantage they can get. what steve wynn says i could care less. >> dana: rooms in vegas. >> greg: what does it mean? >> kimberly: i like that he is being transparent. he describes himself as democratic businessman, straightforward. but if you are worth $2.3 billion, you can say whatever is on your mind. >> bob: you talk about an oxymoron, steve wynn straightforward. >> dana: he said a magazine rated him as the 512th most rich person in the world. that's like being the tallest pygmy. >> eric: what you have to understand he's talking about businesses. we have 14.1 million people
2:04 am
out of work because businesses are not hiring. they are not hiring for exactly the reason that steve wynn points out. they don't know what taxes look like going forward or healthcare looks like going forward. >> dana: i disagree. they have been passive aggressive. they're smart. you can't make a business hire someone. if they're uncertain they -- >> eric: what are they uncertain about? >> dana: to your point but they're not pushing back enough in some ways the policy makers need to hear from more people like steve wynn or others, even behind closed doors, and not something we foe on fox, but they need to hear it. >> greg: this guy is a big harry reid supporters. this is what happens when a democrat gets a taste of the liberal idea. it's okay to vote for it and then it starts affecting you. then all of a sudden he talks about fear of regulation, fear of healthcare cost, poor of redistribution. he's no longer a harry reid supporter, he is a tea party. >> kimberly: see how the transformation occurs?
2:05 am
>> eric: we put together. look at the top three recipient of the casino political campaign contribution. you're 100% right, my friend. senator reid, number one. $300,000. that is well above the number two. all three of them, kim, -- what is the name? >> kimberly: that is why the comments he is making are so credible. he is sumone who supported the democrats and he has the courage to say listen, i don't think that obama is doing the right job here. he said he would in fact hire, he wants to hire but he is prohibited from doing so by the administration and by the obama policy that he finds too much ambiguity. >> bob: i'm not laughing at you. i'm laughing at eric. let me just say -- >> eric: read the numbers, bob. >> bob: can i give you political intelligence here. both of the two recipients are from nevada. now that is surprising, because they're the big gambling supporters and they
2:06 am
are his senator. the third one -- >> why you are talk put the numbers up. >> bob: the appropriations chairman. each one of these, head of the appropriation committee and the two senators from the home state. now that is a big surprise. >> eric: wow, bob. >> bob: he gives his money to those people. >> eric: look at the difference. $304,000, $184,000, $126,000 and it drops from there. >> bob: of course it does! you made the point harry reid -- >> eric: reid benefiting from -- >> greg: the real story here is obama was supposed to be different. it turns out he's not. he is just another grad student with anti-capitalist tendencies. now you are hearing it for democrats. one thing i'm interested about his wife is really pro-obama. this has to be a great dinner tonight at home when he comes home from work. what are they going to talk about this she doesn't have to deal with the consequences, because she is married to a billionaire. she doesn't have to worry about the economic problems or rise in unemployment. >> honey, pass the american express black card.
2:07 am
>> bob: steve wynn, this is the first step of going where the wind is blowing politically. steve wynn is not a democratic. he is a democrat if democrats are in the white house. if republican is elected he will be a republican. >> eric: he is blasting obama. what are you saying? >> bob: he's betting like you that obama won't be re-elected and he's wrong and you're wrong. >> dana: he is not alone there are other people behind closed doors saying the same thing. >> eric: absolutely. >> dana: from a political stand point, nevada is one of the states that can go either way in a presidential election. it's just three electoral votes. president obama and his team are counting every one of the heads and they know they have to win nevada. i think it's in play for the republicans. >> bob: it is in play for the republicans. the other thing is if you look at the d traditional democratic business givers, they have gone the other way and obama won't have the same support he had.
2:08 am
they're businessmen and hedging their bets. >> greg: they're scared. >> bob: they're not scared. they are going where they think the money is. >> eric: they are scared do you see what happened today? one investor service, credit agency downgraded, almost downgraded, put five u.s. states on credit watch. five american states on credit watch today. >> bob: if it was up to you or the tea party, the entire country would be on credit watch. >> eric: it could be that way soon. >> bob: how about the territories? throw them in, too. >> dana: people are making a connection from president obama's policies to the economy not growing. the problem is they might not blame obama for the financial crisis. it still goes for the president i worked for, president bush, but the connection about wait a minute, he said it would be better, they're not getting better. that is what this steve wynn comment speaks to, i think. >> kimberly: i agree. it's telling. >> eric: bob, last word. fair and balanced. >> bob: i say i understand given the situation why people are hedging their bets and moving away from obama right
2:09 am
now but there is still another year to go. i guarantee you, somebody who is a republican and they have to be looked at as a potential president i think you will see movement the other way. >> eric: or obamanomics, epic fail. either one. coming up, dems invoking the name of my hero, ronald reagan. dy they really just go there? bill clinton adds his two cents to the debate saying he would apply the 14th amendment. bill, who asked you? "the five" will be right back. service was very moving, wasn't it?

you can't be turned down because of your health. plus, your costs will never go up, and your coverage will never go down. okay. i'm convinced. i'm going to give them a call. are you between the ages of 50 and 85? did you think that quality insurance at an affordable rate is out of your reach? if you answered yes to these questions, then you should call about the colonial penn program now. for less than 35 cents a day, you can get affordable life insurance with guaranteed acceptance. there are no health questions or medical exam. you cannot be turned down because of your health. so, whether you're getting new insurance or supplementing coverage you already have, join the six million people who have called about the colonial penn program. ask one of their representatives about a plan that meets your needs. they're waiting to hear from you, so call now. i've put this off long enough. i'm definitely gonna call about the colonial penn program.

2:14 am
over and over again. and i'm still trying to figure out how the 14th amendment applies. >> bob: maintain the credit of the united states. but you know who else believes raising the debt creeling is ronald reagan. can we have the ad run now by the democrats quoting reagan? >> kimberly: i love now they compare him to -- >> greg: he's dead. >> eric: ronald reagan had sense, as george bush to raise the deficit without anarchists trying to stop it. bring this up and listen to your hero. >> congress consistently brings the america to essential of default before brink of responsibility. it threatens those rely on social security and veteran benefit. interest rates would skyrocket. instability would occur in financial markets and the federal deficit would soar. the united states has a special responsibility to itself and the world to meet its obligations. it means we have a well-earned reputation for reliability and
2:15 am
credibility. two things that set us apart from much of the world. >> eric: go get, bob! >> greg: that was impersonator. that was not ronald reagan. >> bob: that was suck cinct. >> dana: what would help democrats is show humility and show that president obama as senator wrote a letter to president bush explaining why he thought it was a dereliction of duty to raise the debt limit. >> bob: he did? >> dana: it's hard to swallow the testimony coming from the white house and running an ad with ronald reagan. >> bob: obama owned up to that, he was playing politics. >> dana: he didn't own up to it. >> bob: he did. he was playing politics. mo of the people on the owe side when the president is in the white house -- >> dana: right but why don't they admit it and do something constructive. >> bob: i just did. >> dana: they should. >> kimberly: we call it hypocrisy. he is blaming everything else.

he is blaming the bush administration for all of his economic woes. >> bob: what he said is what you said. social security check, the interest rates will go up. >> kimberly: ronald reagan didn't have the idea -- [ overtalk ] >> eric: it's disingenuous for the d.n.c. to use ronald reagan as the poster boy or the hero. the smaller government, he was for lowering texass. pro-business sector. >> bob: did you agree what what he said? >> dana: you have the tape. >> bob: i'm breaking my rules. did you agree with your hero or not? >> eric: that's like saying a rapt that see, bob is a republican. >> bob: did you agree with your hero or not? >> eric: she is my hero. >> bob: that's all i'll say. >> greg: debt ceiling debate is a woody allen film. it never ends, all talk no, action. at the end you want to shoot yourself in the face. >> kimberly: want to see
2:17 am
"midnight in paris"? >> greg: absolutely. after work. i disagree with what reagan said. great president but i disagree. the debt ceiling debate is different from what it was in the past. light now is a spasm of self-preservation, you are seeing a government fighting for more food when we should be starving it to death. that is the problem. let me finish. the federal job, the study came out and saw you are more likely to die than to lose your job. >> kimberly: can you believe that study? >> greg: this is why the debt ceiling debate is important. >> dana: federal government employee, very specific. one thing i remember back to when i just left, come to washington. right after the 9/11 attacks. i was at the justice department. we would walk by this woman every day. she would come in, in the morning. a civil servant and sign in on her computer, send a couple e-mails and be gone for a while. come back a pew hours later and then she was gone again. i remember one time the person in charge of the political part of that office said what does that person do? nobody could really answer. you just get on with it. one day this political person
2:18 am
was at macy's, shopping, and behind the makeup counter, working the second job was the civil servant. it was hard to fire them. kili totall >> kimberly: totally believe it. >> bob: the mcconnell plan started and now harry reid is with him, will probably be the vehicle use to raise the debt. they will probably pass constitutional amendment in the house, not in the senate. it's a dead issue. so they will go with the reid-mcconnell idea to give the president the option to raise the debt. that is probably the final deal. >> eric: for true conservatives is a derelict of duty and rollover by republicans. >> greg: i understand. >> kimberly: it's probably the eventual outcome because they have to come together to make a decision but nevertheless will it serve the country long-term with the financial woes, the debt crisis, out-of-control spending. it's abdocation of leadership. >> dana: we have the gang of
2:19 am
six. rep the folks? tom coburn left the gang of six and now he is coming back and wants to be constructive. one thing that is a problem in the country is the primary system. what happens is there is a poll today, "usa today" today saying two-third of the people want washington to compromise. the problem is two-third of the people aren't the ones calling of their congressional office there is two type of people that call. people who say don't you dare cave. other people who say you better not cave to the republicans. so that is what happens. you are playing to your base only in the primary system. so you have senator hedge who has to take a hard line to win primary in utah. wholesale reform is needed. >> bob: another poll that case "usa today" says people think that congress cares more about the own re-election than dealing with the deficit. gee, you think? >> eric: can we point out ronald reagan one more time, since you want to throw him under the bus vehemently.
2:20 am
at the time, he was looking for a debt increase around 20% of our economy. 20% of our economy. mr. obama is sitting on 100% in debt of the economy looking to be 200% over the next eight to ten years. vastly different economic scenario. >> bob: i am worried about you. >> greg: i want to go to the poll. >> bob: we have to get out of here. exsuze me for a second. coming up on "the five," these robbers were barking up the wrong tree. find out the hero that saved the day. we show you the entire surveillance video next. later, we will tell you why some of the favorite scandalous superstars are back in the news when "the five" continues.

and reformed. i to say, if that is true, then i think it's good. why not go to the schools. >> eric: any reform? >> kimberly: i the same experience at a dinner with wayne. i work with the u.s. humane society and they testified in my dog mauling case where we had the owners held responsible for the second degree murder charge. i think in this case, though, michael vick to me, i still can't get past what he did and what he allowed and he has gotten away with this because he is a celebrity and amazing football player. >> bob: he may be trying to rehab himself, and one who went through five rehabs myself, sometimes it takes longer for some. but him testifying on dog fighting is having charlie sheen go up and ask for more funding for mental health. it doesn't make -- what? >> eric: that works.
